The arches might be golden at McDonald’s headquarters in Oak Brook, Illinois, but everything else about it is decidedly green. The building was designed to be sustainable when it was built in 1988, but new innovations, such as designated parking spots for alternative-fuel vehicles and a new recycling and waste program, helped the building attain LEED Platinum certification by the U.S. Green Building Council in February. Earning the highest certification level—held by only 16 other buildings in the world—also helped boost McDonald’s bottom line; execs say the building will recoup the nominal LEED project costs in less than a year.
